A garage is a really useful space, but it can often become more ‘out of sight out of mind’. Although garages are typically designed for storing cars, they are useful for storing all sorts of other items too, from garden equipment to tools. However, this capacity and the fact that they are not in the house can lead to them often becoming cluttered and untidy.
If you want to make the most of your garage space, the first thing to do is start by decluttering and cleaning it out. Get everything out, and really decide whether you need it or want it any longer. You will probably be surprised by how much you are storing that you had completely forgotten about!
Once you have got rid of all the things that you no longer need (you could take them to a charity shop or sell them online) and got rid of any rubbish, you can then give your garage a good clean. A fresh coat of paint can also be a good idea if it is looking a little worse for wear.
Make sure that your garage is also safe and secure. Check that the door is working correctly and that what you put in there is going to be safe. If not, contact someone like this garage doors Bristol based company who will be able to replace your door for you.
Once your garage is ready, you can then start to plan your storage. Shelving and drawers are great for keeping everything stored neatly and now you know what you need to store in there you can assess how much storage you need.
